His Robot Girlfriend - More than 5000 Downloads in One Month




Between December 15th and January 15th, His Robot Girlfriend was downloaded 5343 times from the three host websites: Feedbooks.com, Manybooks.net, and Smashwords.com. If you haven't got your copy, visit one of these links today. Thanks to everyone who downloaded His Robot Girlfriend, thanks to all those who read the book, and most of all thanks to those of you who sent me your kind words afterwards.

His Robot Girlfriend was a fun read, Wes. And Princess Of Amathar is well worth the $1.59 from Smashwords.

Original post by dreams;

Thanks for the kind words. I hope to have at least two new books out within a few months, at least one of which will be, like His Robot Girlfriend, distributed for free.

Wowsers, Wesley, over 5000 in a month? That really is impressive So... *cosying up* What's your secret? Just good writing, or some great publicity secrets?

I swear I didn't download more than 4000 myself!

Seriously I lucked out with a catchy title and I had the good sense to buy the rights to a good cover pic. 5000 downloads, but I don't know how many actual readers.

I have one in the works, but it's not one of the books I have completed.

Congratulations. The industry has a long way to go until there is a Daffodil but I hope you got a cut.

Actually, I'd also be very curious to know where you've been promoting as well. I've fiddled around on a few message boards to some small effect, and I increased my number of downloads this week from 90 to a few shy of 600 (I attribute most of it to the wonderful fellows at Mobileread).

I've posted at a few more places, but there aren't too many ebook enthusiast sites.

I have not posted about this particular book at any other sites that Mobilread and my own blog. My other free books have 150-500 downloads for that same month.

Hmmm...

Well, fortune favors the talented, I suppose. Many congratulations to your success!

This just tickled a vague memory in the back of my head - so I did a search and discovered Article on TeleRead last month. I suspect that's a factor in your jump in stats. Congrats! Always great to get attention from a popular site/blog, even better when it's positive
